go away, nobody likes you 😃
Dollar that friend that stole your pot, tried to steal your friends girl, then tries to hang out with your crew acting like everyone's still cool.

If it wasn't to try to mend things for the fans he'd have messaged him in private.

Amazing to think that after what he has given this club already that his greatest gift might still yet to come. We are eternally in his debt.

If this is the case, then we Milan fans are truly blessed.

Salernitana got Juve midweek , us this weekend.
Genoa got us midweek, Juve this weekend.

wonder what's like to be a fan of bottom of the table team. must be depressing ... we got a diluted sample of it during the past decade.

this Sheva Genoa may not be good yet, it seems they are missing a lot of players, but they did fight...with some luck they can get result over this soft Juve

Look, more people than not noticed last season that Leao had a problematic attitude that doesn't have to do anything with fitting better in one role or in another role. If you don't bother to make the runs, to keep a high pressing line, to track back, to cover for someone leaving his position, you're labeled lazy.

I'm not presuming I knew how Leao trains and how he is in real life. I don't know him outside the 90 minutes per week I see him train.

But Zlatans words to me seem like a big huge confirmation of the mutual gut feeling that many people already had, and not only on RnB. Leao was criticized for his attitude by many experts too.

Rebic as CF last season also looked awkward most of the times and was criticized too. However not as much as Leao, because he never lacked the right attitude. That is the difference.

Now this VS here doesn't get tired of using Leao being played out of position as an excuse for his poor attitude and performances last season. Meanwhile he couldn't get enough of criticizing Rebic all season long despite being played as much out of position as Leao. VS simply has double standards, personal biases and lacks the intelligence of admitting being wrong at times. He's probably the only RnB member here being unhappy about Kjaer being an absolut beast because that would mean admitting defeat.

Last year I said Rebic CF > Leao CF

Leao was not good at CF, that’s simple.

Leao is pressing less than other players this season, including Ibra 🤣

Commoders said “He improved because he is working harder and is no longer lazy”

Again proved wrong.

He improved because of his position. LW role allows him to do better with the ball.

I'll be very surprised if this isn't serious enough to force us into a CB purchase in January.

Grab the Romagnoli situation by the balls, buy a quality replacement for Romagnoli, play him in tandem with Tomori/Romagnoli until the summer. Next season we have Tomori, Kjær, new and ready CB, Kalulu and Gabbia.

Or develop Kalulu into a new Tomori.

You can’t easly develop aerial game after 20.

I think the only way we spend money on a defender in January is if we make the next stage of CL, otherwise we will find a free loan somewhere.

Favre and Adli early would be nice, add a quality long term CB to that and we in dream land.

Fwiw, I don't know how some people can believe in karma after what's happened to Simon.

We will most likely do exactly nothing in winter, I don't think Maldini is playing any games here. We still have 3,5 CBs and frankly a low cost panic signing won't be better than Roma or even Gabbia anyway so there is really no point.

a smart Maldini will loan Gabbia out and bring in a stopgap veteran CB, Mirante style, while sitting Romagnolis contract out and securing a young and promising CB for the summer with a little cash during the winter window

IIUC Gabbia may be needed for some homegrown player quota (I could be wrong)
